    What year did Florida start issuing CCW?

    I need to show the change in crime rates. I found the FBI stats, but I need to know the year.

    Also, any non-partisan links to stats about Britain and Australia crime rates rising due to gun control would be appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Hmph.....stats don't go down in '88.

    What happened in 1997? They dropped significantly in 1998.

    How much you get in prison for committing crimes with guns.

    Florida has strict mandatory minimum sentencing for violent crimes especially if they are committed while in possession of a firearm

    Automatic, no repeal, minimum
    10 years if you use a gun in a crime
    20 years if the gun is fired
    25 to Life if anyone is shot


    Threatening someone while simply in possession of a firearm is a mandatory three year sentence
    A felon in possession is also three years

    These sentences run in addition to any other sentence

    A true example of the "with rights come responsibility" school of thought

    Vermonter, please be aware that it was not illegal to carry a gun in Florida before their reforms. Like California, some areas were tough, some were easy.

    The reforms of '87 provided a uniform, non-discretionary methodology. HTH.

    A friend was arrested for carrying concealed in '85

    Open carry was generally a misdemeanor, but situationally enforced

    Glove box carry was allowed but nobody really knew the rules
    But gun racks were full
